Refreshing musical moments from the first half of the last century are the heart and soul of Shirt Tearing Boys. The boys (and girls) recapture a time when muffled tunes spilled out of tube radios and country-swing bands filled Saturday night dance halls with laughter and hope. Mixed with a dash of original tunes with the same attitude, Shirt Tearing Boys create a lively acoustic musical blend that transports audiences to an almost forgotten, yet very fun and familiar place. The band comprises Ottawa musical stalwarts Charlie Sohmer, Tony Turner, Fred Guignion, Ann Downey, George Laing, Sally Robinson and Corky Kealey. Bring your dancing shoes!
